Some, but not all, of the signs pointed toward Kings goalie Jonathan Quick making his first start since injuring his groin on Nov. 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. Tangible: Quick left the ice at Saturday's morning skate at about the same time as rookie goalie Martin Jones. And Quick appeared to come through the brief session unscathed. If Quick is activated for Saturday night's game against Vancouver at Staples Center, then it appears Jones would go back to Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League.

Bad things happen to us all. It's how you respond to the calamity that defines you. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick has found himself staring into the abyss of despair in this early NHL season. And each time, the goalie who led his team to the 2012 Stanley Cup and a trip to last season's Western Conference finals answered with what Kings goaltending coach Bill Ranford calls a "five-star performance. " On Oct. 7, a game after being pulled in the third period of a 5-3 loss at Winnipeg for allowing a third-period wraparound goal to Jets right wing Devin Setoguchi, Quick was doing his best to keep the Kings in a game they were otherwise getting beaten down in against the New York Rangers.

Kings Coach Darryl Sutter and goalie Jonathan Quick had plenty of interesting things to say during their news conference following L.A.'s 6-1 Stanley Cup-clinching victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Such as ... wait a minute, did that photographer just get whacked in the head with a Kings flag? That's hilarious! OK, sorry, what was I talking about again? Oh yeah, the news conference featuring the most valuable player of the postseason ... wait, who is that little chatterbox running, skipping and jumping all over the place?

San Jose Sharks Coach Todd McLellan sounded less than gracious Thursday when asked about the performance of Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick in the Sharks' 3-0 loss at Staples Center. Quick stopped 24 shots as the Kings took a 3-2 edge in the teams' Western Conference semifinal. He leads all playoff goaltenders with a 1.50 goals-against average, .948 save percentage and three shutouts. But McLellan didn't seem impressed by Quick's work. “I didn't think we tested him a lot tonight," McLellan said.

TORONTO, Canada - The groin injury suffered by Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has not ruined his chances of being chosen for the U.S. men's Olympic team for the Sochi Games, Team USA General Manager David Poile said Thursday. Poile and other USA Hockey executives reaffirmed during a conference call that the U.S. men's and women's teams will be announced on Jan. 1 during the national telecast of the Winter Classic game between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. The women's team will be announced during the second intermission and the men's team will be announced after the game.

Kings Coach Terry Murray will change his lines but not his goaltender for Sunday's win-or-vacation playoff game against Vancouver at Staples Center, calling Jonathan Quick "our guy" despite two shaky performances in teamwide breakdowns the Canucks have exploited to take a 3-2 series lead. Quick, overworked during the season and off his game since the Olympics, gave up five goals on 26 shots in two stints during the Kings' 7-2 loss Friday at Vancouver. The blame wasn't his alone, but he didn't make any momentum-changing stops then or in Game 4, when the Kings squandered three one-goal leads in a 6-4 loss.
